Set on seeing a little more traditional architecture a few weekends ago we set off for Gyeongbokgung Palace. In Northern Seoul, these nicely kept sites are surrounded by trees and walking paths. Very beautiful. Here are some pictures.
Im such a sucker for the painted adornment on the inside and outside of the buildings. I love that torquoise!
We were intrigued by the figures atop of many buildings but are still unsure of their significance.
Finally, there was a section of white washed buildings with no painted detailing.
In this section we saw an example of the first ondol systems.
It was great to explore the buildings. I think this trip has fulfilled my quota of taking pictures of traditional buildings, however, and I think Sandy is glad for it.
